A poem by Sarah McGurk
Trapped in death
Façade stripped bare
Cries for help heard years too late
“Will nobody think of the children?”
Background: I don’t often write poetry, but these words came to me when I was driving last week. So insistent were they, that I had to stop the car to write them down. My thoughts continue to be with the victims of the atrocity of Grenfell Tower in London.
